Over the years Samsung has developed passion for making the smartphone market highly competitive. Along with making the smartphone market highly competitive, the South Korean phone maker is known for combining beauty and quality when it comes to smartwatches—and its latest product is something to look forward to—the Galaxy Watch Active.
The Galaxy Watch Active was launched on Wednesday alongside five phones earbuds, and a fitness tracker. Even though the company did not release much information on that front, we all do know that it features a blood pressure tracker. Samsung said the device was designed in conjunction with a UCSF researcher, and will be available for download from March 15.
Its feature is comparable to Galaxy Watch, and spots a new design that is thin, light, and versatile. You can choose from a range of different colors to match your unique taste and style, while the attractive minimalist design allows for easy navigation.
The Galaxy Watch Active boasts of some of the most amazing features you can think of if you are the health-conscious type [but why won’t you be interested in your health?]. Some of these features include:
Blood Pressure Tracking: The device places high premium on smarter blood pressure tracking on your wrist. Download My BP Lab, the research app jointly developed with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), directly to Galaxy Watch Active to monitor blood pressure and keep better track of your physical health every day.
Stress Tracker: This feature enables you to put your stress levels in check and guide you towards long-term health. You can start breathing exercises to bring you back in balance directly from the stress widget.
Easy Fitness Tracking: Choose your activity and get started. The Galaxy Watch Active keeps up with you by auto-detecting when you run, bike, row, hike or trek. You can manually engage in more than 39 activities and whether you use an elliptical machine or trekking poles, you can set daily goals and monitor your progress.
Galaxy Watch Active is compatible with both Android and iOS and offers real-time coaching, indoor/outdoor activity tracking and boasts some great third-party apps such as Armour, Spotify, and Strava.
The smartwatch sports a 1.1-inch display covered in Gorilla Glass 3, and runs Tizen [not much of a surprise there since other Samsung watches run on Tizen]. The device has 4GB of RAM and a 239mAh battery.
Galaxy Watch Active launches on March 8, and is prices at $200. Customers who pre-order for the watch from Thursday will get a free charging pad. The watch comes in different colors including, green, black, silver, and rose gold.
